THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Life itself can't give you joy, unless you really will it.
Life just gives you time and space, it's up to you to fill it.
Live so that your children's children will hear a good story.
Delight thyself also in the LORD;
and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Light from the Word.
This Scripture has been so misused and so misquoted,
that I broke it out to discuss today.
Mere professors of Christianity feel that Christianity is DUTY
"Delight" is far removed from their vocabulary and attitude.
Thus, they become antagonistic when not getting their way.
Just because we believe, trust in and love God, we will not receive
everything we desire.
That is not contradictory to Scripture.
It is truth according to Scripture.
The true desires of the regenerated, Spirit-filled, born-again believer
is to LOVE God, and to DO His will in life.
God will bless those desires and make them fruitful in His work.
If we "delight" ourselves in the Lord, we will have HIS DESIRES
in our hearts.
It will be what GOD wants that will be important to us.
Therefore we shall certainly receive what HE wants.
And, that SHOULD BE our "delight!"
Make God's desires your desires.
Then, you will "Delight thyself in the Lord!"
